Re: Hanging Curtains and D****s - Holes in the Wall
If there is framing behind the drywall, then patch the holes and install rod support screws long enough to penetrate the framing by 1". If there is no framing behind the drywall, then cut out a small, square hole about 4" square, or larger if needed for patching purposes. Install a length of 1x2 behind the drywall that spans the patch hole plus at least 2" on either side of the hole, for a 4" hole, that would be an 8" stick. Secure the stick in place with drywall screws, cut your patch and install that with drywall screws. Tape and finish the repair, paint, and you're done. When you rehang the mounting bracket, use longer screws that penetrate 1" into the 1x2.
